Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My dishwasher is a Smeg model STA 6143, and the door won't close. It seems fine until the last few centimeters, then it jams and won't close easily. If you press hard, it'll shut but not latch. Nothing appears to be stuck anywhere. We've tried jiggling the door but it seems somehow to be misaligned, although there's no reason why it should all of a sudden appear to be so. The electronics work fine, the racks fit fine (we also removed them, and the door still won't close), and nothing appear

Whirlpool ADG993, door fault: Hi, a few weeks ago soemthing broke on the door to my diswasher and it falls open wide with no stopping half way as usual. That was fine as the machine could still work, but now the door won't close. All seems fine until you get all but closed and then the door raises slightly from the bottom right corner, preventing it from closing. It looks like something may be jammed in there which pushes the door up at the last minute. There's a man coming out on Friday,

Myy kitchenaid dishwasher model kudi01flss doesn't start even though the lights on the panel light up so I opened up the door to look at the latch and found a broken plastic piece that appears to be part of the latch. Could this be why the machine doesn't start. The funny this is the door still seems to snap closed even with this broken piece but what I'm thinking is that this piece activates some sort of electrical connection that turns the machine on when the door is closed. Any thoughts on th

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on. The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

Kitchen circut was accidently turned off. Now whirlpool gold disher will not work(unit was not running and the door was not closed all the way when circuit was turned off, All circuit breakers are on) There are no lights on display when door is closed completely, and it appears to have no power. Worked fine prior, what could it be? The unit has not been removed from under the counter yet. Is there a fuse or circuit breaker on the unit? If so where is it located? Other troubleshooting ideas


Hello- Turn power off. Remove kick panel and cover for power wires. Check connections. If these are ok, most likely suspect is a fuse at the control. This is a little harder to get to. Remove inside door panel screws. Unplug wires and remove panel. F ... Whirlpool Gold 24 in. Built-In Dishwasher Dishwasher

Bosch dishwasher SHU3032 UC/14. The soap dispenser does not open. In the past I've used dishwasher magic or similar to clean the dishwasher of hardwater deposits and that solved the problem.

I checked the resistance on the Wax motor and it is with in spec, approximately 2150ohms. I 've watched the cycle and the wax motor never seems to actuate. I put my meter on th

Wont start I've had the washer for many years with minimal problem. Yesterday when I closed the door no light went on and the washer would not start.  After 20 minutes or so it suddenly went on and worked fine.  I thought that it might have not completed its last cycle. Today, however, I had the same problem and it's been over an hour and still hasn't started. (I checked the circuit breaker and it's fine)

The dishwasher stop during the wash cycle. It did finish draining the water from the tub. The machine is not showing a power signs, I check the circuit breaker and the fuse is not tripped. I open and closed the door and the door latch seems to be working fine. There is just no power to the washer. Usually when a machine breaks down, there still is power or buttons that light up on the front of the machine. I looked on the internet and many say that the fuse could be tripped. No where can I find

My Asko D1606 doesn't seem to be filling/retaining enough water to pump actively through the swing arms. When I add a litre or so of water in manually and hold in the door catch, I can see it appear to start working properly. The tablet is still sitting on the bottom of the dishwasher after the cycle has ended and the dishes are still dirty. The pump sounds all right and it is emptying fine. Also, probably due to the lack of water, the cutlery basket has melted right through, and I am sure any p

Unable to turn off the delay start and the latch is in the wrong position so that the door will not close properly. Also, there is no digital display--it remains dark. I tried the cancel/drain, which didn't help. The machine seems to be running through all cycles fine.


Pull the open handle to open the latch up and try to get it to close. Disconnect the power to the machine for a few minutes. Run a cycle that you don't usually run. See if that helps. ... Bosch 24 in. SHV66A03 Built-in Dishwasher
